Not the brand. The French word for baby, that is.

Her breed is the combination of Chow Chow and Japanese Spitz.

Anyway, that’s the youngest member of our family. And we love her so much. It’s going to be her 7th birthday on April 16 and it’s just so sad that John and I won’t be here to celebrate it with her. Yes, we celebrate our dog’s birthday every year, thank you very much. But I’ve plans to send her some gifts though 🙂

Our baby girl is just one of the many reasons why it’s so hard for me to leave Manila.

This afternoon, I was playing with her and she was just not in the mood. What she did was she kept on licking my arms. Nonstop.

As if to say she doesn’t want us to go. 😦

5: If you were given the opportunity to spend 48 hours with absolutely anyone (living or dead), who would you spend it with and what would you do?

  • My daddy. Well basically I would tell him a lot of stories about me, tell him everything. Then I’d bring him to my favorite places around the city. Then I’d tell him to play the music he used to play every morning to wake me up, and we’d dance to those songs like they will last for more than 48 hours… 😦

6: Name a LEAST favorite of each: food, drink, color.

  • Food: okra. (google this veggie if you haven’t heard of it)

25: Which member from which band would you most want to lather in nutella?

  • Hihihihihihihihihihihi. GABE SAPORTA of Cobra Starship!!!

So this list is obviously from Tumblr and I figured it’s cool to do another Q&A here on my blog.

And before I even started answering this, my brother left the house. I thought he’s gonna spend the night here. Damn it. 😦

These are my boys.

The guy on the upper right is my younger brother (John) and my lower left is my nephew (Marco). I basically refer to them as my brothers because being specific takes a lot of seconds. And Marco is like a brother to us now. I mean, what the heck, the boy grew up with us since his parents were not always around.

Anyway, they’re as awkward as me. And even if we fight everyday about who’s going to have the TV’s remote, they’re still two of my favorite people in the entire world.

John and I must leave soon and I still can’t see any changes in his behavior towards it, perhaps because he’s a dude. And I kinda get that. He’s probably just trying to think that things will not change and/or all will be well. I would like to think that’s what he is doing because that is what I am doing right now. I’m kind of conditioning myself about the move but I am also trying to savour every second of my last few weeks here as if things will stay this way forever. I mean, I don’t want to put pressure on the kids. I don’t want to pressure myself too. I’ve so much pressure to meet once I get to Novato so I’d like to have an advanced break, please.

I will definitely miss my nephew. He’s my bitch and he’s my photo-buddy. Unlike John, he takes pictures with me more often. Although sometimes, when he’s not in the mood, I still have to bribe him. But whatever, he still is cute. 🙂

Sorry for the old pictures, tho.

This is a sample photo of Bailey’s Chocolate Cake of Chocolat Deep Dark Chocolate Cakes, straight from their website. My sister and her husband came home with two cakes from the said bakeshop because it’s Valentine’s!

With that said, I wish all of you a very happy Valentine’s day! Hug whoever (and whatever) is beside you right now and spread the love, love, love. 🙂 ♥

After a  fun-filled day for me and my family, we went to Greenhills Shopping Center (one of our favorite malls) to hang out, eat and have some milk tea (from Happy Lemon, of course).

The tickets in the photo above were the ones my sister and I paid for so we could use their washroom.

One ticket is worth 10 pesos, which is roughly a quarter of a dollar, and is good for only a single use.

For me, pay lounges are quite annoying. Especially if you really, really need to go but you can’t use the restroom right away because you still have to get some coins from your wallet that happened to be inside your bag? It just sucks. 😐 Also, in some places, you’d feel like your money isn’t really going somewhere aside from the management’s short but stout pocket. Why? Because the tissue paper, the hand soap,the  rubbing alcohol and the jet dryer are either missing or messed up! Then some cubicles are so dirty, you’d think their maintenance personnel got abducted by aliens and then killed, and that the only reason why you’re going to use them is because you have no choice.

But whenever we are in this favorite mall of ours, I don’t mind paying for those tickets. At all.

Maybe it’s because of the clean ambiance inside; the artistic design of every washrooms, how they maximize their space without disregarding the potential use of it; the complete set of stuff us girls need inside; the funny ads behind every door; and just the cleanliness of everything!

Okay. So I know it’s insane to actually rave about restrooms but I just obsess over cleanliness. I really, really do.
